A homeless man (Vincent D'Onofrio) with a troubled past...two young sisters with a dark secret...part modern day fairytale, part ode to the solitude of New York City nights...IT'S A MESS is a study of the loneliness that comes from knowing that in this "civilized" world, innocence and evil are separated only by a fine mist that dissipates after sunset.
